Albert Coffee Tours 2019 Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence

Best archaeological tour ever! ….and I’ve been on quite a few. What made the Cañada de la Virgen tour “best ever” was the passionate interpretation of English-speaking (with Cajun flair) guide and archaeologist Albert Tyler Coffee. He has done archaeological work on the site and his passion for it shows through. He has a way of making the complex issues of human history simple, and puts everything into context. He has a friendly demeanor and his crisp, clear voice is easily heard even at a distance while you’re snapping photos. Be prepared for a few hours with just your basics: good footwear, sun protection, respect for the site, and your camera. You won’t be allowed to bring much else in order to preserve the site, unlike so many other sites overrun with commercialism, development and pollution. This place is pristine! If you have any interest in Mesoamerica, DO NOT MISS THIS SITE. If you’re an English speaker, go with Albert, none other.
